The styling element must-have at your next event
Just a few years ago, we saw high-end designers such as Burberry, Dior, and Stella McCartney grace the catwalks with transparent bags and clutches, ankle boots with chunky heels, and all kinds of accessories.
Now, acrylics have transcended from being moulded onto our fingertips for a pretty French manicure to making their way onto the event styling scene – and Team LENZO couldn’t be more excited!
Contemporary luxe is where the party’s at now: think transparent gold, copper, and even black acrylic décor pieces. You won’t just be seeing it in the centrepieces and clear risers, though – the laser cut acrylic trend has extended to backdrops, wedding stationery, plinths, cake toppers, and even drink stirrers! All of which are accompanied with lush greenery and florals, of course.
We’ve used laser cut acrylics in many of our recent editorials, so here’s how you can incorporate this super-hot trend into your next event:
Menus and stationery
Acrylic letters, numbers, and seating charts are a sure-fire way to get your wedding, engagement party or intimate dinner to stand out from the rest. Not only do they look sleek, but when you use acrylics as a personalised place card, they can be kept by guests as a reminder of your special day!
Adding a custom acrylic cake topper to individual cupcakes or on a single cake makes the dessert look that much more fun! If you’re hosting a wedding, ditch the traditional two figurines and opt for a fun “Hitched” or “Best Day Ever” sign on the top of your cake!

Acrylic display backdrops
Want to provide a #SHAREWORTHY photo op for your guests as well as personalise your event? Then you can’t look past acrylic displays as backdrops. Have them custom-made to read your company’s name or into a cute hashtag for your wedding.
It’s the little things that make an event, and we love the idea of incorporating a personal touch to a wedding, birthday party, or even corporate launch through the use of custom drink stirrers.

The Finishing Touches
Perhaps the most fabulous thing about acrylics is that it goes well with just about any colour – be it a pop of brightness, minimalistic blacks and whites, or our favourite: with glitter and sparkles! It can also be incorporated into anything that you can imagine – from the placemats to chair decorations, neon signs, wishing wells, gift tags, and plinths.

We’re so in love with this trend that we designed our very own DIY Perspex menus… and yes, we’ve provided the step-by-step instructions so you too can create the look at home!
